Cuddle Cot Donation from Peters Family

After the passing of their daughter, Carli Nicole Peters, Nick and Kelly Peters donated funds that were gifted to their family to the Nora Madelyn Fund. As a result of this generous donation, the Nora Madelyn Fund was able to purchase a Cuddle Cot to be used by bereaved families at Providence Newberg Medical Center. A Cuddle Cot is a cooling system that allows a baby to stay with their family in their hospital room. We greatly appreciate the Peters family’s generosity which will allow the Nora Madelyn Fund and Providence Newberg Medical Center’s Perinatal Loss team to further support and assist our families in their time of need. Thank you, Nick and Kelly, for this gift in memory of your beautiful girl!
